Employee Guidelines to Keep Our ASU Community Healthy

Employee Guidelines to Keep Our ASU Community Healthy

Widespread vaccination is essential to ending the COVID-19 pandemic, and we expect all members of the ASU community – employees and students – to do their part by getting vaccinated and by uploading their vaccination records. ASU continues to offer vaccines free of charge for all employees.

  1. Make a vaccination appointment in the ASU Employee Health Portal.
  2. Please upload your vaccination record promptly after you are vaccinated.

In August, all employees must complete the updated fall 2021 Community of Care Training for Employees. Our Community of Care training, implemented last summer, has been critical in guiding workplace operations throughout the pandemic and will continue to be a critical tool as all employees return to campus.

Face cover and health check updates

  1. Non-vaccinated employees must wear face covers inside all ASU buildings and will be selected for COVID-19 testing.
  2. Fully vaccinated employees who have uploaded their vaccination records are no longer required to wear face covers inside ASU buildings effective immediately, unless otherwise directed.
  3. Fully vaccinated employees are not required to submit the daily health check effective July 15, 2021.
  4. Fully vaccinated employees of course may continue to wear face covers if they wish, and everyone is encouraged to wear face covers in crowded areas and venues.

ASU continues to evaluate flexible work arrangements, taking into consideration lessons we have learned about hybrid working environments and the value of in-person engagements and may communicate options later this year. For now, our students are excited to come back to a full in-person campus experience and we are excited to support them.

We appreciate your continued determination and commitment to ensure a healthy and productive ASU community.

Building and Facilities Information

Building and Facilities Information

Sun Card building access did not change when the buildings went into lockdown mode during the pandemic/teleworking. The only thing that changed was, the building access readers were set to only unlock when a badge, with the correct access assigned, was swiped.  Based on information that we have today, this will not change when we return to campus.  Therefore, you do not need to request access prior to returning to campus. Below are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Should you encounter an issue with your badge not allowing you access, please submit a ticket to CHS Facilities.  
  • If you never had to swipe your badge and are not sure you have access, please submit a ticket to CHS Facilities ASAP.  By submitting a ticket, it provides us with the information we need to pull your badge access information and troubleshoot any issues, prior to your return.
  • There are multiple people monitoring the tickets, so we will be able to respond quickly. You may also call the front desk line at 602-496-1949 during business hours for assistance.
